OffTopic ~ National Feral Cat Day

This is a little off topic but I thought I would share anyway! Today is National Feral Cat Day! Help spread the word! Below post is crossposted from my other blog, Drowning In Cats. Feel free to crosspost this information. Education about Feral Cats is the key.

Happy National Feral Cat Day!

October 16 is National Feral Cat Day. Take a few minutes today to help spread the word about Feral cats! Tell someone about what they are, why they are feral, what a colony is, about the pros and cons of having a colony nearby, and about population management! If you spread the word to one person today, that is one more person than yesterday who knew about Feral Cats.
Here is what Alley Cat Allies has to say about National Feral Cat Day:
October 16 - Ten Year Anniversary

National Feral Cat Day (NFCD) is your opportunity to help protect and improve the lives of cats around the county!

In 1990, most Americans didn’t know the best way to care for stray and feral cats. Thanks to Alley Cat Allies, today, improving their lives through Trap-Neuter-Return programs is widespread—and the movement continues to build. Hundreds of local groups work on behalf of stray and feral cats, while millions of Americans have reached into their hearts and their wallets to care for and feed them.

There is still work to be done. National Feral Cat Day—October 16th—is a perfect opportunity to tell others about our feral feline friends and truly make a difference in cats’ lives.

Glad to know there is a Feral Cat day and that this movement is growing. My sister has been active in doing the trap-vet-release thing. Sadly, where I live, feral cats become coyote or bobcat food.
